Let's do it again soon!
It's super fun to bling out all sorts of things!
But- before you go do all that... here is my Dragon Tail Tutorial... because
I promised my Nolan I'd make him one :)
I borrowed this great tutorial from
Polyfil batting (small bag)
NOTE: To make the spikes easier, you could cut 1 strip out of felt or fleece and just cut out a spike strip leaving the raw edges that won't fray, rather than sewing your spikes with 2 strips of fabric.
Take your two spike strips and lay them right sides together. Draw a row of triangles along the strip for the tail spikes. Begin at one end and work your way to the other, making the spikes shorter and narrower. I left about 1/2" between each spike.
Trim to about 1" around each Button Topper.
Fold fabric inside of Top half of Button Topper and drop into large rubber head.
With fabric all tucked in, place the back of the button on top of fabric,
Turn back (small side) of the I-Top Tool lining it up with the back of the button. Squeeze gently.
Peel rubber back and covered button should pop out!
5. Spots to Tail:
Now you can decide where you want them placed on your Tail Pieces.
You can baste at 1/4".
6. Put Tail Together:
Next lay other Tail Side on top of spikes, Right Sides Facing!
Pin well. Decide where you want your opening for turning. I put mine on the opposite side of the Spikes. Stitch around both sides of Tail 1/2" seam allowance catching valley's of Spikes, (skipping those 4" to 5" for turning later) Leave Large end open.
Take straps and lay them Right Sides Together. Stitch 1/4" around 3 edges leaving a short end open for turning. Clip corners and turn Right Side out and press.
This is very important!
* One strap must have Velcro face up, and the other side must have the Velcro against the inside side.
Stitch both straps on using a 1/4" seam allowance.
8. Closing Up Large End:
Take 7" circle and pin around opening at the large end- Right Sides Together.
Stitch around entire circle using 1/4" seam.
Turn Right side out through large side opening.
Stuff with Polyfill.
Pin opening together and stitch closed using a whip or ladder stitch.
You Got yourself a Dragon Tail there Mister!
